The good news is most teams will have more wiggle room than expected. The NFL announced to all 32 teams that the salary cap will jump from $120.6 million last year to $123 million in 2013, sources tell NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. There also is a per team minimum salary benefit of $900,000, setting total player compensation at $123.9M per team.
The extra $2.4 million isn't going to make the difference in landing a high-profile free agent, but it will help teams in assigning restricted free-agent tenders and locking up draft picks later this offseason.
